Feed My Starving Children
January 15, 2010

I became a regular donor after hearing my father rave about the organization and all that they do to feed the hungry around the world. While I'm not physically located near any of their packaging sites in the US, I hear it is one of the most rewarding, short-term volunteer experiences one can have. That they are able to commit 94% of all donations to direct support of the food program is amazing! Their online platform for giving is seamless, and their balance of sharing information and asking for more is among the best I've experienced (don't feel overwhelmed by more and more asks for money).

NEW URBAN ARTS
September 2, 2009

New Urban Arts manages to make everyone who comes into contact with it have hope for the future of Providence and the world. As a board member for the past 7 years I've seen it grow and evolve - but most importantly, I've been able to grow and evolve with it. My profession is as a non-profit leader and consultant, but much of my greatest learning in this field has come from my interaction with New Urban Arts. That's what is so amazing about this organization - everyone is a learner, everyone is a teacher. If we all carry that out into the rest of the world, we will be the change we want to see in the world.
